Unique & Compelling Internet Applications
for Your Hands-on Science Classroom

National Science Teachers Association
2004 National Convention

April 2, 2004

Discover "unique and compelling" applications of the Internet: use of real time data, telecollaboration, use of primary sources and student publishing. These applications cannot be replicated without the use of technology and engage students in authentic science investigations where they perform experiments, collect, record and analyze real data, make predictions, and, in effect, become real scientists. Developed by CIESE, the Center for Innovation in Engineering and Science Education, all projects promote the integration of science, mathematics, technology, and other core subjects.
